Be good to your skin

Taking care of your skin can help reduce breakouts. Six things you can do to be good to your skin are:

Wash your face twice a day

1. Wash your face twice a day

You can’t scrub acne off, so be gentle. Wash your face morning and night using a mild cleanser and lukewarm water. Then, gently pat your face dry.

Keep your hands off

2. Keep your hands off!

It may be hard to resist, but don’t pick at or pop your pimples. This may make your acne worse, and it may even lead to permanent scarring.

Shave carefully

3. Shave carefully

Shaving can irritate acne, so shave lightly—and only when it’s necessary. Be sure to soften your stubble with warm water first, and use a shaving product labeled noncomedogenic. This means it won’t clog your pores.

Shop carefully

4. Shop carefully

Many soaps, skin-care products, and makeup contain ingredients that can either cause acne or make it worse. Look for products labeled noncomedogenic or nonacnegenic, which means they won’t clog your pores. This is especially important when choosing a moisturizer. An acne-sensitive moisturizer can help with excessive dryness, which is a common side effect of many acne treatments. Talk to your doctor about which skin-care products are best for your skin.

Stay out of the sun

5. Stay out of the sun

Many acne medicines cause sun sensitivity, which means you’re more likely to burn. Stay in the shade as much as you can, and if you have to be outdoors, always use a noncomedogenic sunscreen.

Talk

6. Talk with your doctor

Acne is a treatable skin condition—not just part of being a teenager. If you have not already done so, consider visiting a dermatologist (a doctor who specializes in treating skin disorders). Talk with your doctor about whether you could benefit from a prescription treatment like FABIOR Foam. Learn More.

Do not use FABIOR Foam if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. FABIOR Foam may harm your unborn baby.

If you are a female who can become pregnant:

  • Use an effective method of birth control during treatment with FABIOR Foam. Talk with your doctor about birth control methods that are right for you
  • Your doctor should do a blood or urine pregnancy test within 2 weeks before you begin to use FABIOR Foam to be sure you are not pregnant
  • If you have menstrual periods, begin using FABIOR Foam during a normal menstrual period to help assure that you are not pregnant when you begin use. Stop using FABIOR Foam and call your doctor right away if you become pregnant during treatment with FABIOR Foam

Before you use FABIOR Foam, tell your doctor if you:

  • or a family member have or had skin cancer
  • have eczema
  • have had a reaction to topical products in the past
  • have any condition that makes your skin sensitive to natural or artificial sunlight
  • must spend a lot of time in the sun for your job
  • have any other medical conditions
  • are pregnant or plan to become pregnant
  • are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if tazarotene passes into your breast milk. You and your doctor should decide if you will use FABIOR Foam or breastfeed. You should not do both

Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Especially tell your doctor if you use other medicines or products that make your skin dry or take other medicines that may increase your sensitivity to natural or artificial sunlight.

Use FABIOR Foam exactly as your doctor tells you to. Do not use more FABIOR Foam than prescribed and do not use it more often than your doctor tells you to.

FABIOR Foam is flammable. Avoid fire, flame, and smoking during and after you apply FABIOR Foam.

The most common side effects of FABIOR Foam are burning or stinging, dry skin, red skin, or peeling or flaking skin. Sometimes these symptoms can become severe and may be uncomfortable. Your doctor will tell you to stop using FABlOR Foam until your skin heals and your symptoms improve, or to use FABIOR Foam less often to help you tolerate it better. Tell your doctor if these side effects become uncomfortable for you. These are not all the possible side effects of FABIOR Foam. For more information, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
